    excellent sized plant for the price so very pleased. Just a bit sad that it was bent over to fit the box - one of the stems is still struggling to recover

    Received the sapling which was curled into a box which was too short for it but was supported by enough straw to keep it from moving around. The planting medium was very dry but after a couple of hours standing in water I planted it on into a large container and it appears to be doing quite well.

  4. So far, so good 3

    I have only put 3 stars as I need to see how the plant grows on now that I have put it into a larger pot.
    It does look healthy and has lots of growth.
    It arrived very well packaged and protected by straw in a box.
